ILM leads Sci-Tech entries

2 Industrial Light & Magic projects under consideration

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences unveiled on Friday the 11 scientific and technical achievements that are under consideration for Sci-Tech Oscars.

Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light & Magic is the only company with two projects under consideration.

The Acad announces the list at this time of year so anyone who asserts that he has developed these or similar technologies can submit his claim to the org.

The most recognizable items on the list are enabling technologies for digital intermediate, which has revolutionized creative post-production (the specific credits are still TBD, per the Acad); and Lucasfilm’s Imocap system for getting performance capture data under first-unit conditions (Lucasfilm Entertainment).

The other achievements on the list, with credits, are the development of Fujicoor ETERNA-RDI digital intermediate film (Fujifilm USA); relighting for virtual characters (USC ICT); ambient occlusion (Double Negative VFX); point-based color bleeding (Pixar Animation Studios); OBAQ/DOALL (Industrial Light & Magic); Film Master (Digital Vision Ltd.); System 5 (Euphonix); Rigtight (1stCall Studio Equipment); Heden Lens Motors with two-stage friction drive planetary torque amplifier (Heden Engineering).

The 2010 Scientific and Technical Awards presentation banquet will be held Feb. 20 at the BevWilshire.
